Perched on a gentle hillside, our home is spacious yet warm and welcoming, especially suited for families or friends gathering for weddings, reunions and graduations. Lots of parking and play space, this newly built 4,000 sq. ft. house encompasses the best of being in Malibu. Views, large deck, hot tub and deliciously comfy beds to fall into every night. Two minutes drive to Starbucks and shopping at Trancas Village.

The space

We think what makes Island View Lodge special is its setting, so close to the ocean you can hear the waves crash at night, but not the busy traffic that runs along the Pacific Coast Highway! Nestled into the hillside, surrounded by Palm, Banana, Jacaranda and Bamboo trees,, our home is like an island retreat. In fact, on a clear day you can spot little Santa Barbara island way off the coast, looking like a baby whale!

Guest access

The Garage is off limits and locked as well as the Master Bedroom Wardrobe. We provide a temporary hanging facility in the Master Bathroom suite. There are walk in wardrobes in the other bedrooms that are available. The office is also locked.

Interaction with guests

We are usually here to greet our guests, and get them settled. Then we take the opportunity to have a little getaway ourselves. Back in time to say goodbye, or our guest leave the keys in a designated area. We do have a little trailer hidden away at the bottom corner of the garden, unseen mainly from the house that which we will occupy if we do not go away, or our house manager will stay there and be available to assist in any way.

Other things to note

After having guests with children, we sadly have to say we think our home is not suitable for children. There are too many spots they can fall off decks, hurt themselves, or climb into the hot tub.
Babies in arms are fine, children over 12 are fine but too much worry in between that.

VERY IMPORTANT- Please do not go into the hot tub straight from the beach. Please rinse off all sand from your body and don't wear the same trunks or bathing suit that was in the ocean.

Michael and Lisa's place is just fantastic! It's a spacious house with a beautiful landscape and gorgeous views. As amazing as the pictures are the actual place is even more spectacular. The house is in a great shape and it was very clean. They were great hosts, we were treated like family from the minute they greeted us. Lisa sent us some great tips and helpful information leading up to our trip. They were very accommodating with our arrival time and trip duration. We had a great time and we would love to go back. I highly recommend their home, it's the perfect vacation home!

Just a picture perfect location and house. 10 mins from Zuma and Pt Dume beaches Very clean on the inside and perfect for a small intimate birthday party. The massage chair was an absolute hit. Communications with the owner in the lead up to check in were detailed and helpful. The outdoor sitting area with the fireplace was an area where our party naturally gravitated toward. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.

This was a beyond-fabulous stay. I would highly recommend Michael and Lisa's place to anyone who is leaving for a s home is really beautiful - very airy, bright, and situated where you get a perfect amount of sun for the day! - with fireplaces inside and outside, a kerosene heater outside, and a beautiful garden. Each room is wonderful and spacious with its own bathroom and there are many seating areas. There is a full size den with a sofa bed. Thank you to Lisa and Michael again for the great weekend stay.

The pics on AirBnB don't do this gorgeous house justice. We rented for our multi-gen family to stay for our son's wedding weekend and had the rehearsal BBQ dinner here. There was more than ample room for everyone to sleep comfortably and have their own bathroom. The view to the ocean is to die for. The gardens are gorgeous and we loved watching the the birds and squirrels right out the kitchen window. Michael and Lisa are excellent hosts and left easy instructions everywhere. I could go on and on. Our family hopes to return and enjoy the house again. Thank you Lisa and Michael!

The house was wonderful -- brand new, clean, spacious with a large deck and gorgeous views of the water in the distance. We stayed there with 10 people for a wedding at Triunfo Creek Vineyards (~20 min away) and everyone loved the house. Lisa was very kind, helpful and accommodating. She was willing to work around our schedules for check-in/check-out. One helpful thing to note is there is no cell reception in the neighborhood but the house has wifi. I would recommend this house to anyone!

Mike is a retired fire captain and I (Lisa} run my own business- Malibu Fountains.
We are fun, gregarious and enjoy life together! Love making new friends and sharing this beautiful space with those who come to visit our beautiful state! Especially enjoy interacting with visitors from the UK or Europe as I (Lisa) lived just outside London for many, many years and I can guide with extra understanding and knowledge what overseas visitors would most like to experience whilst here.
